The family of 28-year-old Omoregie Jeffrey is seeking justice for their late son. This is after he was killed in Benin City, Edo State, by a drunk motorist who is allegedly a yahoo boy.
It was learned that the dead was hit in the early hours of Tuesday, August 9 by an unidentified driver. The drunk motorist was traveling at a very high speed.
According to a source, “Jeffery is 28-year-old; and he just got a scholarship and admission to Canada to study for his masters in engineering; and was to travel on the 28th of this month. He was a very promising young man.
“He was a petroleum engineering graduate of the University of Benin; and just came back from his association conference of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) in Lagos to prepare for his travel.

“The yahoo boy was arrested and taken to the police station but the police have refused to disclose his identity.
“They told the family of deceased that he was moved to Adesuwa police station; and this turned out to be a lie because the station said the boy had not been moved there; that they also suspect some form of foul play in the previous station.” [sic]
Members of the public have since joined the family of Omoregie in demanding for justice.
